The Yucca Valley High School basketball Trojans fought hard for a victory but fell to the San Jacinto Tigers by a score a 63-57. Coach Gilbert Berry said senior Captain Lawrence Mays suffered an injury in the second quarter and never returned. The team rallied around each other and fought until the last second but came up short. Although leading most of the game and by three at halftime, Yucca Valley High School couldn’t put the Tigers away, and the Tigers eventually won by wearing the Trojans down.
